Corozal Police had to set chase behind a suspicious vehicle yesterday after the occupants were seen throwing out a number of packages that turned out to be over 2.5 kilos of marijuana.
Police say that on Monday they saw a grey Toyota 4Runner with license plate BZ 36909 exiting San Antonio Village and going in the direction of Corozal Town. They followed the car. Upon reaching Buena Vista Village, one of the occupants threw out the suspicious packages and the Police stopped to check what the packages were. This allowed the vehicle and occupants to escape.
When they checked what was inside the packages, they discovered suspected cannabis amounting to 2,500 grams.
The suspected drugs were taken in and labelled as found property.
Police eventually found the vehicle abandoned in San Jose Village in Orange Walk and none of the occupants were around.
Police authorities have not indicated whether they will now investigate the owners of the Toyota 4Runner.
